The Xbox One game gifting feature is coming very soon. Mike Ybarra, Xbox vice president, revealed on Twitter today that the company is “not far” from adding the support to gift purchases. With this feature, gamers can buy titles for their friends.
Currently, Microsoft and Sony both don’t allow game gifting on the Xbox One or PlayStation 4.

Game gifting has been a highly requested feature by Xbox One fans. A post on Microsoft’s Xbox feedback site has amassed nearly 5,000 votes over the past three years.
It’s not clear when Microsoft will launch its game gifting service. However, with Gamescom scheduled next month, we can expect the company to announce it very soon.
